A true villain!
With a new generation on the way, PU once again pauses to reflect on our past before heading into the future. Whether it is by nostalgia, boredom, or renewed interest, the PU Classic is born to fill the gap until the new generation arrives all the way down here in PU. This tournament will celebrate PU's interesting history through the generations, culminating into a finals where players must play all generations to have a chance to write their names in the history of the tier!
The format consists of three separate tournaments: The ORAS Cup, The BW Cup, and The DPP Cup. Each tournament is single elimination, best of three. Depending on your performance in a Cup, you will be awarded points. The point system is the same as the one used in Smogon Tour. When all the Cups have been finished, the eight players with the most points will advance to the play-offs. There they will battle in a best of three series until there is one undisputed PU Classic champion.
Signups for each Cup will be posted a week after the signups for the previous Cup in the circuit tournaments subforum. The hosts are allowed to play in the tournament that they are administering, as long as they elect someone else to create pairings. Here is the list of the Cups with the names of the hosts and the dates each will be posted, and with links to the signups:
If there are any questions, post in this thread and I will answer them as well as I can. Do not use this thread as a venue to complain about the format.
Have fun and good luck to everyone competing!
